Energy Saving Schools
In Quinter, Kansas, a wind turbine has been installed to power the school. It saves them one thousand dollars per month. Why can't our schools in the valley be equipped similarly? The Fruita 8/9 is a school in its second year of operation, and the utility bills are over $12,000 a month. Installing solar panels would significantly reduce this bill. Every new school built in Mesa County Valley School District 51 should be equiped with solar panels. Students will attend these new schools for several decades, so why not save all this money?
